1983 Mercedes-Benz Metallic Diamond Blue Metallic Convertible
Hardtop Roadster - 170,500 miles RESTORED 2018-2019 - see below
Hardtop color matches the body color; the convertible top is dark
blue canvas, matching the dark blue interior. The original 3.8
liter fuel-injected V-8 engine is very responsive and the
air-conditioning is very cold and is sure to please! This car has
been very well taken care of and never smoked-in. Has never been in
any kind of accident or had any body work. I am the second owner

that this 380SL is the tightest 380SL he has ever seen. The car's
interior and exterior was restored in Feb 2018 and Feb 2019
respectively. The exterior was stripped (all chrome and attachments
removed) and properly re-painted as original. The interior work
included replacing all 7 climate control vacuum pods, complete seat
rebuilds incl new horsehair pads, springs and leather from Germany.
The seat backs were upgraded during the restoration from the
original 1983 flat-back to the 1989 bolstered, contour seat backs

custom Australian lambs wool sheepskins. This car really turns
heads and people are shocked to learn it's almost 40 years old!
